The first part of a six part series about 2D rendering and animations in HTML5. Topics in part 1 include: 2D vs 3D differences, CSS vs SVG vs Canvas, Raster vs Vector, Layer composition, Blend Modes, Masking and more. 8:10pm In Your Own Words: how to discover where to take the conversation with voice interfaces Presented by Marc de Pape While working on new smart speaker experiences at Connected Lab, we quickly realized that we had no way to simulate conversational interactions in order to better design them. We tried Wizard-of-Oz'ing it, but cutting and pasting responses into speech-to-text apps was really slow. Our testers just weren't able to suspend disbelief, and as a result we weren't able to see where the conversations might go. So we decided to build a tool, called Simili, that would allow our Product and Design teams to create realistic simulations of voice or chat conversations. This is the story of Simili and the future of designing for voice interactions. 8:45pm Cooking Simple ReactVR Apps Presented by Edward J. Apostol - @edwardjapostol - Edward is going to guide you in a story about using React VR to build VR apps using JavaScript style code. He even showed his Mom how to do it! And if his Mom can do it, so can you! Virtual Reality is hitting the mainstream and has become more accessible to consumers than ever before. There is a large market for building digital experiences, and it has practical implications from showcasing products and services from remote locations to enhancing learning and educational experiences. Edward will demonstrate his latest version of his VR pet project work using React VR the foundation to explore new "virtual worlds". This will be a sort of "hands-on" demo - if you have your own WebVR supported gear bring one in! - otherwise come a peak at what Edward's been cooking!

What we're about

Public Group

CreateInTO provides a platform for developers, designers and other digital creators to network, share ideas and learn about new tools and techniques from their peers.

We've grown from the fledgling Flash community working with Actionscript 1 (or earlier) and have come to welcome the full gamut of topics from the business of interactive, to design portfolios, to hardware and creative coding and web development of all kinds. It's the diversity of interests in the former FlashInTO that have lead us to CreateInTO.

You are creators, makers, jacks of all trades. You like to design things and write code. You want to delight others with your creations and/or make the world a better place to live. You want to share and learn from others. If these statements describe you, come out to CreateInTO.
